Marks sparks Chanticleers’ walk-off win over Camels

ccubase-Anthony Marks vs Ohio StateCoastal Carolina senior outfielder Anthony Marks, who was 4-for-4 on the night, hit the first home run of his life to turn the momentum in the fourth inning and the 20th-ranked Chanticleers wound up winning, 6-5, in dramatic fashion in the bottom of the ninth versus Campbell Friday evening at Springs Brooks Stadium.

Seth Lancaster also played a pivotal role in the win. The sophomore hit two doubles, including one in the ninth, and scored the game-winning run on a Campbell throwing error.

The teams will conclude the series on Saturday at 2 pm. Prior to the game, CCU will honor its 2016 senior class and admission is free as part of Fan Appreciation Day.

Coastal (39-15, 20-3) was down 5-1 in the fourth inning and Camel starting pitcher Grant Yost was in control. However, in the fourth, Tyler Chadwick hit a leadoff double and scored on a Lancaster double. Two batters later, Marks lined the first pitch over the right field wall for a two-run round-tripper to cut the CCU deficit to one, 5-4. Not only was it the first home run in 545 at bats as a Chanticleer, Marks said it was the only one he has hit at any level of baseball he has played.

CCU relief pitcher Bobby Holmes then had a quick 1-2-3 top of the fifth, striking out two. With all the momentum, Coastal’s All-American candidate Connor Owings hit a leadoff home run to tie the game, 5-5, with his 14th blast of the season.

From that point, pitchers Holmes for Coastal and Yost and Erik Dowse for Campbell took over as they all faced the minimum amount of batters over four innings (bottom of the fifth through the eighth).

In the ninth, Justin Lamazares started the inning by reaching on an error. Coastal turned to Mike Morrison (6-1), who is rated the fifth-best relief pitcher in the nation by D1Baseball.com. The senior got an out on a sacrifice bunt, a fly out to left field and walked pinch hitter Jimmy Monaghan with two outs and first bae open before getting a fly out to end the inning.

In the bottom of the ninth, Lancaster hit a double off the right center field wall to start the inning. Matt Bearid, as he has done all season, laid down a perfect sacrifice bunt. Dowse tried to throw out Lancaster at third, but the throw was late and got away from third baseman Junior Snow, which allowed Lancaster to score the game-winner.

Beaird now has nine sacrifice bunts this season and the runner he advanced has scored all nine times. Overall, CCU has 58 sacrifice bunts and the runner advanced has scored 43 times (74.1 percent success rate).
